By now, I'm sure you've seen the amazing work of young activists in Chicago shutting down Donald Trump's racist campaign. We are working with many of the same young people who helped lead Friday's protest to oust Cook County State's Attorney Anita Alvarez this Tuesday and we need your help.
Anita Alvarez is in one of the worst prosecutors in America and we have a real chance to defeat her this week.Over and over again, we have seen prosecutors failing to hold police accountable for violence against Black People. Anita Alvarez failed Laquan McDonald, Rekia Boyd and many more. We created ByeAnita.com to help local organizers educate voters about Alvarez's record.
Like most elections, this one will be about turnout. We need people all over the country to help get out the vote in Cook County. Here's three things you can do to make a difference:
